  1. New and Improved Classifiers for Fault Diagnosis

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Pattern classifiers are useful for many commercial and military applications such as target recognition, fault diagnostics, pattern recognition, etc. The main goal of this research is to improve the classification performance of existing classifiers. Our proposed architecture consists of two major parts. One is to improve the individual classification performance of each classifier. We propose to ...

  2. Tunable, High Power Fiber Optic Laser for Lidar Applications

    SBC: SIGMA SPACE CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a fiber laser which can be tuned over the range of 1530-1575 nm,produce high pulse energy at pulse rates from CW up to 10 KHz, has a narrow line width, and can simultaneously lase on two tunable wavelengths. Additionally, this laser will operate within the eye safe range. A laser of this type would be attractive for conventional lidar and altimeter systems as well as wind lid ...

  3. AlN 3D Thermal Packaging


    The project goal is to demonstrate feasibility of fabricating aluminum nitride (AlN) microelectronic package substrates with integral microchannel heat transfer structure. A novel fabrication approach was demonstrated in Phase I called ceramic stereolithography (CSL), which enables monolithic fabrication of the microchannel AlN substrates. The AlN microchannel devices are suited for cooling high ...

  4. A High Resolution Ultra-Wide FOV Telepresence Display

    SBC: Sensics, Inc.            Topic: H502

    NASA has embarked on an ever more ambitious path of developing modular space exploration systems, and human exploration missions. To enable missions that are envisioned for the future, advances in the human/robotic interface are required. This proposal provides a new telepresence interface, based on an ultra-wide field-of-view (FOV) HMD. This fully immersive HMD has a FOV which nearly matches the ...

  5. Ultra Wide Band Water Sensor

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: E401

    This proposal details an innovative water sensor system based on Ultra Wide Band (UWB) technology. We propose to mount UWB hardware on a remote controlled or autonomous Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) for both remote soil measurements, and measurements of snowpack depth and density. IAI has been doing independent work on UWB for several years, and is currently working on 15 contracts for different app ...

  6. Ka-Band PAA for Satellite Telemetry System for RLVs & Aircraft

    SBC: PARATEK MICROWAVE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The development and implementation of passive phased array antennas (PAAs) offers significant performance benefits over the current active arrays. The keys to successful development are the low-loss phase shifters and the integration of these phase shifters into a modular and scaleable antenna architecture for broad utilization for high data rate communications. The Phase 1 effort demonstrated a 3 ...

  7. Reconfigurable Task Processor

    SBC: PicoDyne, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I of this SBIR, PicoDyne developed and simulated an architecture for Reconfigurable Task Processor (RTP). The RTP combines a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) with a processing unit on a single chip. This combination allows for compact electronics for space applications. A 32-bit processing unit, compliant with the SPARC Version 8 architecture, was chosen for implementation due to its ...

  8. Embedded Software Technologies for Dynamic Goal Determination and Execution

    SBC: Embedded Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The innovation, that we call ARTEMIS (Autonomous Real-Time EMbedded Immune System) is a solution that combines configurable real-time embedded software technology with extensions to model-based reasoning (MBR) to increase the level of autonomy in complex distributed real-time systems. The solution provides policies and mechanisms to detect, diagnose, and reconfigure systems in the presence of fail ...

  9. Helium Loop Heat Pipe for Large Area Cryocooling

    SBC: TTH Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Next generation Far Infrared (FIR) Space Telescopes such as NASA?s SAFIR, SPIRIT, and SPECS require the entire mirrors, which can be as large as 10 meters in diameter, to be cooled to the temperature range of 4-40K. To meet the challenging cooling requirements of the missions mentioned above, TTH Research proposed the development of an advanced capillary pumped cryocooling transport system capable ...

  10. High Speed Magnetostrictive MEMS Actuated Mirror Deflectors

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING SERVICES, INC.            Topic: T401

    We propose to develop high speed magnetostrictive and MEMS actuators for rapidly deflecting or deforming mirrors. High speed, light-weight, low voltage beam deflectors are required for rapid tuning of lasers, airborne and ground based lidar transmitters and receivers, image correctors, scanners, printers, target acquisition and countermeasures. Technologies currently employed include, electro-m ...
